Your Rights

I am not the cause of another’s violent behavior.

I do not like nor want to be abused.

I do not have to take it.

I am an important human being.

I am a worthwhile woman.

I deserve to be treated with respect.

I do have power over my own life.

I can use my power to take good care of myself.

I can decide for myself what is best for me.

I can make changes in my life if I want to.

I am not alone. I can ask others for help.

I am worth working for and changing for.

I deserve to make my own life safer and happier.
